Fire TV App as Remote


Diamond Post Medal for All Time! 1,298 Posts

A Fire stick remote.For some reason our Amazon fire stick remote stopped working. I changed the batteries several times and tried troubleshooting before thinking of purchasing a remote replacement. Guess what? A remote replacement ($20) is almost the same price as purchasing a new Amazon fire stick with remote ($20-30).

After some research, I found out you could download the app Fire TV. Pair with your Amazon fire stick and use your app as a remote instead. Now I won't have to buy a new remote!

Good idea. It'll work on an android phone as a remote also. Thanks

Also good if you don't want clutter with remotes and always have your phone with you too. :) No need to buy batteries!
